EU Breaks With Trump Over Iran: Good ‘Blowback’

EU President Donald Tusk has openly broken with Washington over Trump’s pullout from the Iran deal, Gaza, and looming tariffs, Tweeting recently that “with friends like these who needs enemies?” Will this expanding US/EU rift be the good kind of “blowback” from Trump’s “capricious assertiveness”

Gaza Violence: Blowback For Jerusalem?
